Description Ramon Fonseca 2007-04-12 06:41:53 PDT
I submitted a paper (with the Review option Abstract then Review).
Reviewed abstract and accepted (didn't test resubmit for review or revisions required).

Then reviewed paper and when chose resubmit for review.
Document went to editing, instead of remaining in review.

Reviwer - Recommendation Resubmit for Review 2007-04-12
Track Director - Decision Revisions Required 2007-04-12

Shouldn't it allow a new round?
Comment 1 Alec Smecher 2007-04-12 08:42:05 PDT
We opted not to support multiple rounds of review for conference submissions, as it's not a common process for conferences. John, I suppose we should remove the Reviewer decision "Resubmit for Review". 

Ramón, the Editor decision "Resubmit for Review" has been removed, and submissions should only move into Editing when an "Accept" editorial decision has been recorded. Is there an "Accept" in place?
Comment 2 Ramon Fonseca 2007-04-12 11:22:49 PDT
There are now 3 options:

Accept Submission
Revisions Required
Decline Submission
Comment 3 Ramon Fonseca 2007-04-13 06:22:19 PDT
Sorry all,

The options listed are for the Track Editor only.

The reviewer still has 6 options.
Comment 4 Alec Smecher 2007-04-13 11:13:41 PDT
Corrected -- the extra option for reviewer recommendations has been removed. Ramón, were you able to double-check whether the submission that moved into "In Editing" had an Accept editor decision recorded?
Comment 5 Ramon Fonseca 2007-04-13 11:31:14 PDT
The decision was changed to Revisions Required, but I'm still able to change the decision to any of the 3 options.
Comment 6 Alec Smecher 2007-04-13 11:35:44 PDT
That's as it should be; if the last decision was "Revisions Required", the submission should still appear in the Review queue, pending an author revision. When the author revises, the Director can come back and record an Accept or Decline to supercede the Revisions decision.
Comment 7 Ramon Fonseca 2007-04-13 12:08:24 PDT
I think the option Resubmit Elsewhere should be Submit Elsewhere, since it seems to be inviting to resubmit the paper, but to another conference...
Comment 8 Alec Smecher 2007-04-13 12:14:47 PDT
Comment #7: Agreed. OJS has two "resubmit" options, so it makes sense to word them similarly, but OCS doesn't.
